1. Doctor Who (1963 – )

Sure, it’s about an alien from the planet Gallifrey who jet-sets around time and space in a blue police box. Does that make it any less a drama than, say, Cracker? (Even BAFTA couldn’t resist awarding the long-running sci-fi series its coveted “Best Drama” trophy back in 2006.) The British institution will celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2013, and with BAFTA nominee Matt Smith suited up as the Timelord and the likes of Neil Gaiman filing scripts, the show is showing few signs of age. (Own it on DVD, and watch new episodes of Doctor Who starting Saturday, August 27.)
